    Just Mayweather vs Pacquiao sold more PPVs than the UFC sold this year!

    Boxing is here to stay because boxing is an essential part of MMA. You can’t have MMA without boxing.

    So geeks like d really need to cut the BS. Can’t wait to see how the antitrust lawsuit filed against the UFC is going to end.

    “Just Mayweather vs Pacquiao sold more PPVs than the UFC sold this year!”

    The UFC will hit somewhere around 8m ppv buys this year. Mayweather probably did less than half of that despite the delusional number they float out there. Even accepting the promotion’s number, it is still slightly more than HALF of what the UFC is going to do this year.

    You can have MMA without boxing, what the F are you talking about?

    Fairies like Mr. 5000 aliases need to stop acting feminine and start accepting reality for what it is.
